“Every sphere of human activity, even peeling a potato can be a work of art as long as it is a conscious act,”
“The City is thus a sheepfold superimposed over a Garden.”
“The greatest happiness is the contact between our essence and eternal essence”
I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.
